Just bought one at auction. Missing the engine and drive wheels. It is a type 35AA01 serial number R501. By the look of the data you have collected so far, this would be about a 1948 correct? My other question would be about the engine. Would any akn or aks Wisconsin fit or do they have special shafts?

Were all the 35AA01 using 18" drive wheels? I see some of the earlier s/n like R477 has them and then there are others R256, R161, R331 all low s/n's just curious if they were all 18" drive wheels and how long/how many did they make.

Ed,

The 35AA01 had around 550 tractors built and they came factory with the 18'' rims but you could also order 16 rims that was a option I know of a handful that have the 16'' rims. Later the 35AB01 came standard with 16'' rims but you could still order 18'' rims I know of two 35AB with 18'' rims. Need anything else just ask!

Hi Wilbur thank you for the info. I find it interesting on the history of some of these old bolens tractors. Just reading the old manuals can be fun.
